Universal State Formula

Population5.403 billion

CapitalCity Prime

CurrencyStandard Monetary Unit

The Republic of Universal State Formula is a colossal, orderly nation, remarkable for its pith helmet sales, prohibition of alcohol, and vat-grown people. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless population of 5.403 billion citizens of Universal State Formula are ruled by a mostly-benevolent dictator, who grants the populace the freedom to live their own lives but watches carefully for anyone to slip up.

The medium-sized, corrupt government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Education, and Industry. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of City Prime. The average income tax rate is 99.2%.

The frighteningly efficient Universal State Formula economy, worth a remarkable 3,557 trillion Standard Monetary Units a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, broadly diversified black market in Information Technology, Arms Manufacturing, and Retail. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is a breathtaking 658,481 Standard Monetary Units, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Politicians "baring all" for the camera isn't always a figure of speech, vast amounts of energy are expended moving water to hilltop lakes, the government spends more on chasing distant comets than on basic infrastructure, and cheese has become the new icon of political dissent. Crime is totally unknown. Universal State Formula's national animal is the Leviathan, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Universal State Formula is ranked 132,437th in the world and 6,820th in The North Pacific for Greatest Rich-Poor Divides, with 1.92 Rich To Poor Income Ratio.
